MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski made fun of their cohost Willie Geist for wearing an extra-puffy jacket while in South Korea.


Geist is currently in Pyeongchang for the 2018 Winter Olympics, where temperatures are dipping below zero degrees Fahrenheit and high winds have delayed several events. Still, that didn’t stop Brzezinski and Scarborough from mocking Geist for his big blue jacket.

“Hey, Willie, final question,” Scarborough said. “That jacket — is it also a a flotation device?”

“It is!” Brzezinski exclaimed.

“It does, it is,” Geist jested back, pretending to pull a set of strings on the jacket to make it inflate.

“If you accidentally had too much to drink and you fell into the river, would you just float on your back until somebody rescued you?” Scarborough said.

“I give the safety demonstration before the flight, you pull the strings out and you’re good to go in case of a water landing,” Geist confirmed.
